Sean Reyes is running for Utah Attorney General




Dear Fellow Utahn,
It has been an honor and privilege to serve you and the State of Utah over the past several months. I feel my team and I have accomplished much in a short time. We have lived up to many campaign commitments I made, including an immediate audit of office resources with more audits to come and ongoing restructuring of key leadership positions. In addition, we worked closely with the legislature during the past two months to fine tune many bills and to obtain much needed funding for the office. At the same time, our team identified inefficiencies in our office and budget and returned money back to the state to demonstrate our commitment to fiscal conservatism and responsibility.
We have abolished the use of administrative subpoenas in our office to protect privacy interests while still having tremendous success apprehending dangerous suspects who threaten our families and children on the Internet, in school and on the streets. We have worked to reform asset forfeiture, search procedures and deter intrusive tracking of citizen information through various means.
We have also focused efforts on visiting rural counties, dealing with a number of county/federal law enforcement issues and pushing forward on public lands lawsuits and education. This includes pressing on with RS 2477 Road cases, coordinating resources for a possible lawsuit on federal lands and filing or joining lawsuits against the EPA in multiple venues. Significantly, we have shown Utah's support for 2nd Amendment protections by joining West Virginia in its Supreme Court battle and other states in fighting against the Obama Administration's attempts to weaken gun rights.
We are cracking down on white collar fraud cases and defending Utah businesses. I am pleased to report recent victories in numerous large fraud and class action settlements returning millions of dollars back to the state. We have dedicated significant time to programs protecting against identity theft, particularly in the undocumented immigrant community. In a short time, we have expanded resources to protect abused children while emphasizing and being respectful of parental and family rights.
Our office has also recruited back key personnel and is assessing numerous proposals to recruit, train and retain additional top flight talent. We are addressing pay raises to promote hiring and retention, increasing internal morale, and developing training resources for issues such as document and email retention, and conflicts of interest and ethics. To promote transparency, we have produced tens of thousands of documents pursuant to GRAMA requests.
I am very proud of the legal team of constitutional and Supreme Court experts we have assembled with our office to protect the sanctity of traditional marriage and Utah's constitutional right to define marriage. The dedication and caliber of work by this team in defending Amendment 3 and other Utah laws has been remarkable. Their professionalism, hard work and commitment will serve Utah well at the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals argument on April 10 and quite possibly before the United States Supreme Court this year.
And those are just a few of the things we have achieved since I took the oath of office Dec. 30. While I haven't had time to move my belongings into the office or decorate walls, I have poured everything I have into the duties of the office.
I am encouraged that with more time in the office, I can continue to work alongside the many excellent AG attorneys and staff to defend and protect Utah. I will continue to focus my time and energies on the vital business of the state and work diligently to regain the public’s trust in the Attorney General’s Office. While secondary to my principal responsibilities, campaigns are an important part of the political and public service process. With regard to the AG race, I look forward to healthy and respectful discussions of issues and wish all candidates who enter the best of luck. I will work hard on my campaign and appreciate so many of you who have volunteered to help.

While there are seemingly endless legal decisions, policy issues and operational efficiencies to manage in the office, I was pleased to be able to take a little time with KUTV2’s Shauna Lake few weeks ago to share my thoughts about my new role as Utah AG, my family’s unwavering support, and my vision for the office.

To watch the KUTV2 interview, please click below:
I look forward to seeing many of you at upcoming meet and greet events and hope you will participate in the 2014 State Republican Party Neighborhood Caucus Election night on Thursday March 20th that starts at 7:00 p.m.
In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact me before then with questions. If you are interested in following up on the progress being made in the AG office, please visit http://attorneygeneral.utah.gov/ or call me. My door is always open.
Sincerely,
Sean D. Reyes
Utah Attorney General

Dear Fellow Utahn,

With over 30 years of business experience as a Fortune 100 executive and as the former Director of the Utah Division of Business and Economic Development during the 2002 Winter Olympics, I believe that I have the maturity, knowledge and fortitude required to cut through today’s gridlock in Washington, D.C. and solve the critical problems facing Utah’s 4th District.
To learn more about me and my business experience, please watch the following video:
From drafting and passing legislation while I was a telecommunications executive to leading and growing small start-up companies from 40 to 400 employees, I have tackled many complex problems over the years.

I am not a career politician but, rather a businessman with a civic passion and mission to cut through partisan bickering and get Americans working again. It’s no secret, when Americans are working and optimistic, communities become stronger and more stable. I had to solve the problems in big business, and I will do so again for Utah 4th District constituents if elected as your next Congressman.

Utah’s Caucus Convention system is unique in providing Utah citizens with access to candidates. I ask that you please support your neighborhood caucus and attend Thursday night March 20th at 7:00 p.m. To find out more about caucus pre-registration and precinct logistics, visit utgop.org.

Kevin Jacobs is running for re-election as Salt Lake County Assessor


I am excited to announce that I have filed as a candidate to continue serving you as the Salt Lake County Assessor! In the six months since the Central Committee appointed me to fill Lee Gardner's term in office, I have worked very hard to make substantial changes to the office. The most significant changes include:
Reorganized the office
  • I split the Real Property Division into two smaller divisions, the Residential Division and the Commercial Division.
  • At the same time, I dissolved the Statistical and Modeling Division, as well as the Appeals Section, and assigned those individuals to the respective Residential or Commercial Division.
  • This realignment means the two divisions have all the responsibilities and resources for their area. All phases of property valuation are now "self-contained" within each division. Appraisers and statisticians now work together as a team, which enhances their communication and makes them more accountable for the final product.
    Completely revised how appraisers are assigned their work
  • Previously, appraisers would work in one area of the county and then move to another area the following year. Now, appraisers are assigned to one area and will not rotate. They will be responsible for new construction, reappraisal, and the appeals that come from their area.
  • The appraisers will focus on gaining a very detailed knowledge of their area and the changes that are happening within it.
    These changes are a fundamental shift in how the office functions on a daily basis. I am committed to enhance the performance of the office, and assure you that I am working diligently to make it happen!
    Thank you for your support,
    Kevin Jacobs
    Salt Lake County Assessor

Gary Ott is running for re-election as Salt Lake County Recorder

It is my pleasure to announce on Friday, March 14th I filed once again to serve as your Salt Lake County Recorder.
As your Salt Lake County Recorder, I have significantly modernized and improved the Salt Lake County Recorder's office.
  • Through the use of innovation and technology I have reduced our annual budget $2.4 million.
  • Through the use of technology and attrition I have reduced the staff size by 44%.
  • I pioneered the use of digital technology and was the first in our state and second in the nation to implement electronic filing of documents. Currently, 60% of all recordings done in the office are done electronically.
  • I have also taken a very expensive website and made it cost neutral.
This represents a considerable savings to you, the tax payers of Salt Lake County. These innovations improve the efficiency and accuracy of our office, thus helping protect land owners from fraud.
I am appreciative and humbled by the strong support you have all shown me. I am also proud and humbled to be a recipient of The Lincoln Service Award in 2014 for recognition of outstanding service and leadership on behalf of the citizens of Salt Lake County and the County Republican Party. I have thoroughly enjoyed serving as your County Recorder. I will continue to look for inefficiencies and manage the office in the same fiscally conservative manner I have done in the past and make improvements to the office, as we move forward.
I feel I have done a lot to improve our office and feel there is much more I can do. I would appreciate your continued support and vote in the upcoming election. It has been my pleasure to serve you and I hope to continue doing so.
Sincerely,
Gary Ott
Salt Lake County Recorder

K. Wayne Cushing, Salt Lake County Treasurer, seeks re-election

K. Wayne Cushing, CPA
2014 Announcement to run for
Re-election as our
Salt Lake County Treasurer

It was truly a humbling experience when I was elected by the public to serve as Salt Lake County Treasurer in 2010. Our campaign began in March of 2010 with the hope of convincing delegates and subsequently voters that although I was not politically connected, I had the education, financial background, and business experience to excel as the Treasurer. It was most gratifying to know that our message was heard and your trust was gained.
I have not forgotten that trust and have made every effort these past three years to make improvements to the Treasurer's office. I am confident, and hopefully you will agree, that the improvements made warrant a second term in office.
Some of our major accomplishments include:
  • Total collections have increased by 10% to over $1.04 billion per year.
  • Total delinquencies have decreased by 32% to $43 million.
  • Total tax relief awarded to qualified recipients increased by 16 % to over $8 million.
  • Budgets were decreased every year in areas for which we have control totaling over $140,000.
  • Strategic investment changes increased investment income by over $430,000 since 2010.
  • Staffing has dropped from 29 to 25.
More improvements are already launched or on the horizon including:
  • Initiated and wrote revisions to an existing tax statute that is currently moving through the 2014 legislature where tax notices may be delivered electronically to those who choose that option which can save tens of thousands of dollars in printing and postage costs.
    .

  • Increased efforts to find those who truly need and qualify for tax relief
    .

  • Synchronizing cash flow requirements with new investment opportunities will increase yields.
Without this being a presidential election year, our party will need everyone to participate to ensure success at the polls. I would certainly welcome your vote again as part of our overall GOP success.

Reid Demman Salt Lake County Surveyor Seeks Re-election


An announcement from Reid Demman, your County Surveyor:
Dear Fellow Salt Lake County Republicans,
It has been my pleasure and an honor to serve as your County Surveyor since January 2007. Although the time has passed quickly, I have accomplished many of the things in the office I committed to you I would do, and yet I have more to do as the County Surveyor. For this reason, I am announcing my intent to seek re-election as your County Surveyor.
First, let me share with you a few of my accomplishments while serving:
  • Modernized, streamlined and improved services through technology and a team oriented business plan.
    .
  • Implemented a new fiscal management structure which, along with advanced use of technology and training, achieving a 20% reduction in the Surveyor's Office operating budget.
    .
  • Improved the use of technology and training to reduce overhead costs and increase efficiency.
    .
  • Developed and implemented a process allowing surveyors to file their surveys electronically. This groundbreaking process was the first of its kind in the country and creates convenience, efficiency, and greater expedience to public access of survey records.
    .
  • Created an extensive outreach program which has resulted in the development of partnerships with all sixteen local municipalities for the acquisition of new aerial photography and LIDAR data, saving local government and taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars.
    .
  • Expanded the Surveyor's Office website to provide dynamic and easy accessibility to a broad range of information and tools.
    .
  • Promoted efficiency in government by developing partnerships, collaborative efforts and projects with County, State and Federal offices, thus reducing the so-called "stovepipe" approach to providing services.
    .
  • Enhanced the protection of your property by adding more than 10,000 points to the Hi Accuracy GPS Control Network, which optimizes my ability to restore the Public Land Survey System (PLSS) should it be compromised.
    .
The County Surveyor and the protection of property is an important American legacy that goes back to the days of Abraham Lincoln, early valley settlers, Thomas Jefferson and even George Washington.
.
There is nothing mysterious about the primary focus of the County Surveyor's Office. It's simply the systematic, consistent, open and transparent preservation of accurate property lines and boundaries. This is accomplished through the protection and perpetuation of the Public Land Survey System, from which all property is described and measured. The location and integrity of approximately 340,000 parcels of land in Salt Lake County depends on the County Surveyor, independently, performing his or her duties. Over one million people rely on the County Surveyor for the quiet enjoyment of their property. This is a responsibility I take very seriously. I've dedicated over 35 years to my profession and the protection of property. As a Republican, I offer to you an additional insurance policy against a casual approach to private property ownership and government encroachment. My deep-seated, fundamental, core philosophy is one of respect for life, liberty, and property.
.
Nearly eight years ago, you trusted me as your candidate for County Surveyor and elected me in 2006 and 2010. I am reapplying for the job and ask for that trust and support once again for my 2014 re-election. I am excited and prepared for the campaign to make sure the office remains in Republican hands.
.
I invite your contact with any questions about me or the Surveyor's Office by email at rdemman@networldmail.com, or phone (801) 573-3773. Additionally, I invite you to review the Surveyor's Office website www.surveyor.slco.org or visit my website at www.reid-demman.net/ . I also maintain an open door policy at the County Surveyor's Office for non-political property issues.
.
Thanks in advance for your support.
Reid Demman
Salt Lake County Surveyor

Utah Republicans will be volunteering to help the Republican National Committee take back the United States Senate

A hearty congratulations to the State of Utah! For years, we’ve known our volunteers had a unique blend of passion for conservative principles and an unmatched work ethic. It appears that this combination has not gone unnoticed.

The State Party, in conjunction with the Republican National Committee, is happy to announce the opening of a one-of-its-kind volunteer center located in the heart of downtown Provo. This volunteer center is a testament to your sacrifice to preserve conservative principles not just with your words, but with your actions as well.

We look forward to seeing you at the center's kick-off event next Saturday! Please review the following details and then click the provided link to RSVP:

Provo GOP HQ
249 N. University Ave.
Provo, UT

Saturday, March 22
12pm

Lunch will be provided

Click here to RSVP!
Our hope is to have the volunteer center operational by March 22nd, with an official Grand Opening soon to follow. We want to begin contacting voters and help change the tide for competitive races here in Utah as well as across the country as soon as possible, as the center will be used for both local and national races. It is the hope of the State Party and the RNC that this center, utilizing our citizens' passion and volunteer spirit, will be the deciding factor in whether or not Harry Reid and the Democrats remain in control of the Senate and allow the last two years of President Obama’s presidency to be unimpeded, or if we are able to take back the Senate and bring sanity back to Washington.

However, we cannot do this without your help. We are in need of a variety of office furniture, including folding tables, chairs, and desks before the place will be operational. If you have these, or any other furniture you would like to donate to the center, please contact Jillian Wheeler at jillian@utgop.org or Steven Jackson at steven@utgop.org or reach them by phone at (801) 533-9777. Also, if you do not have furniture but would like to help in the call center effort, we highly encourage you to donate by clicking here.

Again, thank you so much for your continuous willingness to help Utah and its efforts to maintain conservative principles at home as well as throughout the country.
Thank you for your support of the Utah Republican Party.
